TURIN – Maurizio Sarri is close to missing the Serie A debut as Juventus coach. The former Chelsea manager is forced home by a bad pneumonia and not a simple flu as was believed at first. At this point, Maurizio Sarri should make his debut in Juventus against Napoli at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. Irony of fate, Maurizio Sarri could cross the finish line of the first bench with Juventus precisely against "his" Naples. At least he won't have to do it at the San Paolo where a "welcome" to Gonzalo Higuain awaits him.
Maurizio Sarri's debut in the championship on the Juventus bench is at risk next Saturday in Parma. The technician, absent on the pitch at the last training sessions and last Saturday in the Juventus friendly in Trieste, was not affected by a simple flu form, but by pneumonia.
The diagnosis was made yesterday afternoon after "further investigations", as the bianconeri company states. And the new specific therapy was prescribed for the former Napoli and Chelsea technician. It is difficult for the coach to be in his place in just five days at the 'Tardini'. At this point it is possible that his first Serie A match on the Juventus bench will be postponed to the second day, Saturday 31 August, when the bianconeri will face Napoli at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.
From his former company, Chelsea, which last year led to the conquest of the Europa League, greetings to Maurizio Sarri arrive, struck by pneumonia that will most likely force him to miss the championship debut in Parma and perhaps even the first housewife, on August 31 against Napoli.
"All of us at Chelsea – it's the official Blues tweet – we send our best wishes to Maurizio Sarri, who is being treated for pneumonia. Get well soon, Maurizio "(source Ansa).
